“I am confident that everything will go well for the election,” she said. “The election really isn’t over on Nov. 8. We have to wait 14 additional days for any ballots postmarked by Nov. 8 to finish counting ballots.”

Mendoza added that Madison County is always looking for election judges.

“It is an honor to be that person for the voters,” Mendoza said of the role. “They expect to have a ballot and support in place when they go and vote on election day, and judges are there to assist them in their God-given right to cast a ballot.”

Online applications to become election judges, along with more information about the position, are available on the Madison County Clerk’s Election Judges webpage.
